Never seen this thread before. Some lovely bikes.

And somewhere to put all these together!

88 Cinelli Sentiero

87 Raleigh Avanti. Cheating a bit with this photo (cheers Adrian! I feel terrible that this is still sitting in my loft but it will get built and used from time to time for many years if all goes to plan). The frame is now mine, together with all the bits (taken from my smaller Avanti frame) to make it complete - now to find the time!

What a fantastic subject !
Wish I had something to offer , but definately gotta build an '80s bike next . These bikes are so cool . Especially like the Bridgestone and Giant Super Sierras , but all are great bikes . 8)

This is my 1989 Swallow Merlin.

Loving the Swallow.

Heres a 1987 Dawes Cougar. Full 531, rides like a shopping trolly but very well built despite that minor issue...
